Not trying to be a downer, but I’m wondering if all these online folk who love Lupita Nyong’o and her style (which is dope) actually saw ‘12 Years A Slave’ (which was life-changing)…lotta folk were talking ish about it
Lupita Nyong’o (via sonofafieldnegro)
this is so important. too many actors fail to thank the people they play on screen. They often think they are those people and that they have actually done something through acting a part. Lupita knows the importance of playing the role of Patsey, but she always pays tribute to this real historical person and all the Patseys who have suffered. Lupita reminds everyone that Patsey is very real. That Solomon Northrup’s story is very real. This history from this movie is real and we must not forget. Thank you, Lupita. You’re an angel.

Y’all laughing but he’s already writing one especially for her.
*lays down the salt circle*
Y’all better call upon Jesus, Allah, Olodumare, Buddha, Yahweh, and the rest off them. Rebuke it.
Sgt. Thomas McVicar of the Jersey City Police Department shot 22 year old Kwadir Felton, leaving him blind, after Kwadir pulled a gun on him, he claims. Kwadir Felton denied the accusation, stating that he doesn’t even carry guns.
"I don’t understand!" Felton yelled at a police officer before his mother was removed from the courtroom. "You didn’t have to shoot me in the head for no reason! You trying to charge me with something I didn’t do!"
